I was also able to make custom embellishments for a current fiber piece. Combining different elements into fiber is always rewarding; especially when you have total control of the designs desired.

The fiber piece, "Dead Horse Canyon - Mesa Verde", uses layered background piecing, hand and machine stitching, photo transfer, and Dewitt Inktense water color pencils. Here is a sneak peak of the almost finished project.

The custom made metal pieces added an other dimension. Below you'll see examples of the pieces constructed in class. Brass and copper were the predominate metals used to fabricate the images. I totally enjoyed working with metal and plan to do more in the future.
